Maintainer process-document?


#1

Is there a document describing the steps a maintainer should take to carry out maintainer tasks like creating releases, pushing to CRAN, etc? I ask because I am not sure how much of the package updating process is automated and I am worried about somehow breaking the system (rOpenSci News, pkg announcments, etc.) by departing from standard process.

Thanks for your question!

The closest thing we have is https://github.com/ropensci/onboarding/blob/master/packaging_guide.md

Have you seen it?
